NMR/MRI techniques are the focus of two facilities with unique instruments and techniques.
NMR - MRI/S techniques and instruments are available at two different MagLab facilities in Florida: The NMR-MRI/S Facility at MagLab headquarters near Florida State University in Tallahassee and the Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Facility (AMRIS) housed within the McKnight Brain Institute at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
Working in tandem, these facilities combine unique magnets, equipment and expert scientific support with advanced capabilities for technique and instrumentation development. About 24 spectrometers and scanners are available for use with an array of solid state, solution state, MRI/S (animal and human), MR microscopy and diffusion capabilities and techniques.

Our magnets are open to all scientists - for free - via a competitive process and we accept proposals through out the year.
A proposal and prior results report are required.
Upload files and provide details about the proposed experiment.
After your work is completed, you are asked to report to the laboratory, in a timely manner.
